If parentage is anything to go by, Samsung must have been confident when it launched the Galaxy S successor, the S2. And it would appear that buoyancy was well justified - because the Korean giant reckons it has now shipped five million of the things.
Samsung claims to have passed that milestone in just 85 days from the date it first unveiled the Android-powered galactic successor.
The Korean firm hasn't offered an exact breakdown of figures but says the number quoted includes handsets shipped to network operators rather than just those sold directly to the public.
It also claims to have 56% of the market share in its native South Korea as well as being the number one manufacturer in other nations.
We find it easy to believe - as until comparatively recently you couldn't get your hands on one for love nor money in the UK, leading some to worry that Samsung just couldn't cope with supply.
With the original Galaxy S selling five million units in its first five months on sale last year (and indeed, still being offered to customers), the S2 has already apparently beaten that record. Some analysts reckon it could pass the 10 million mark by the end of the year.
